Steelers to hire Arthur Smith as OC, sources say

PITTSBURGH — The Steelers are expected to hire former Atlanta Falcons head coach Arthur Smith as their next offensive coordinator, league sources confirmed to ESPN.

“We’re looking forward to have someone come in and take a fresh approach who can help our young players grow and perform and have the offense perform at a consistently high level,” Steelers owner Art Rooney II said Monday about an impending hire at the position, saying the hire would be made sooner rather than later.

Smith was fired by the Falcons earlier this month after compiling a 21-30 record in three consecutive 7-10 seasons without a playoff berth. Before his stint in Atlanta, Smith was the Tennessee Titans‘ offensive coordinator from 2019-20. Smith initially joined the Tennessee staff in 2011 as a defensive quality control coach and also worked as an offensive quality control coach, offensive line coach, assistant tight ends coach and tight ends coach before his promotion to offensive coordinator.
